Abstract

Background: Long nose caused by a long nasal septum and a plunging tip is known as one of the unpleasant conditions leading to facial disharmony.

Methods: In this study, structure rhinoplasty was performed on the patients based on the three-dimensional (3D) view of their noses. The dynamics of the long nose were thus shortened, using a novel approach, particularly through normalizing the frontonasal angle along with reconstructing the nasal dorsum, which required cutting the dorsum, and then suturing its overlap.

Results: In total, 10 patients were recruited, whose radix-subnasal (RS) and radix-pronasale (RP) were compared before and after the surgery. The study results revealed a significant difference between the pre- and post-operative RP (35±6.78, 32.1±6.78, respectively) (p-value = 0.011), but such a difference was not significant regarding the RS.

Conclusion: Upon the consideration of the 3D view of the nose, structure rhinoplasty can be introduced as an appropriate approach to make a well-shaped functional nose in Middle-Eastern patients suffering from long noses.
